"The suffering is palpable": John Robbins visits a veal barn with Julia Child

In this short video, John Robbins tells the story of taking die-hard veal enthusiast Julia Child to visit a veal barn in rural Pennsylvania. Upon seeing the conditions there, Julia Child gave up veala fact few people know.

As John Robbins explains, 99% of our animal-based food today is produced in such horrible conditions that, if people could see it first-hand, as Julia Child finally did, they would reject it:
"Here was a person who clearly was not vegetarian-oriented in any way, and yet even she [changed], when she saw it, when she was face to face with it."
